Proposal: More Game, No More Work, This Time with Fairness

Times out 3-0. Enacted by pokes.

Replace “Gameplay” with:

As a daily action, the Commissioner may oversee a Bloggsball game between two Full Teams of the Commissioner’s choice, henceforth referred to as teams A and B.
As a biweekly (once every two weeks), a manager may oversee a Bloggsball game between their team and a team of their choice, henceforth referred to as teams A and B.
As an action (may be taken as often as one likes), a manager (whose Full Team is henceforth referred to as team A) may challenge (in a public posting to the Blog) a Full Team of their choice, henceforth referred to as team B. If the manager of team B accepts the challenge (in a comment on the first post), the manager of team B SHALL oversee a Bloggsball game between teams A and B. No two players may play more than five games with each other under this provision per week. No individual team may play more games than the number of Managers in any given week.

This Overseeing is an atomic action consisting of the following steps:

* Calculating the Power of each team. A team’s power is the sum of the Levels of the team’s players. Let the power of team A be represented by X and the power of team B be represented by Y.
* Choosing an odd number of rounds for the game between 5 and 25. Traditionally, this is 13.
* Rolling a DICE(X+Y), not necessarily in the GNDT, once for each round. For a given die, if it is less than or equal to X, team A scores a point. Otherwise, team B scores a point. The team that scores more points during the game wins the game.
* Making a post containing the results of the game.

The number of games a manager’s team has played is tracked in the GNDT.

A Manager whose team has played three more games than any other manager may not have their team play in a blogsball game.

This is More Games, No More Work with an added game cap.

Why the increase from 2 to 3?

Cuddlebeam, because I felt like with more ability to play games, we could be slightly looser. However, the actual number doesn’t matter much so we could bring it back down in the future.
